A Bit About My Art
I combine multiple artistic mediums in my artwork. I love to experiment with salvaged materials such as recycled vintage magazines and product manuals, and strips of worn wood and fabric. I also incorporate my own photography into the collages.

Much like a cultural anthropologist, I sift through these layers of repetitive shapes and gradations of material in order to reflect the passage of time. My paintings evolve into detailed and textured storybooks that embody a yearning for the past, an image-based connection to the present and bold flashes of possible future worlds.

I began making my art after college. I didn’t study art in school. I was raised in a musical household; my parents were both music majors at Indiana University. While growing up I played the clarinet, sang in choirs, and took piano lessons for 17 years. My artwork comes from an intuitive and natural impulse, and provides a source of creative therapy from my daily routine. It also replaces the musical outlets I had while I was growing up.
